Quentin Tarantino ‘Steering Away’ From ‘Star Trek’ in Favor of Smaller Final Movie

  Quentin Tarantino ‘Steering Away’ From ‘Star Trek’ in Favor of Smaller Final Movie Bad news for anyone anticipating Tarantino's R-rated "Star Trek" movie.Tarantino successfully pitched an R-rated “Star Trek” to producer J.J. Abrams and Paramount in December 2017. The studio brought in “The Revenant” screenwriter Mark L. Smith to work on the screenplay while Tarantino began production on “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” Tarantino said earlier this year he would return to punch up the “Trek” script after his “Hollywood” press tour wrapped, and then he would make a decision as to whether or not he would direct the “Trek” film.

“Eighth Grade” star Elsie Fisher quickly ascended to indie film royalty with her endearing, lived-in performance in Bo Burnham’s coming-of-age charmer “Eighth Grade,” playing self-professed “coolest girl in the world” and middle school everygirl Kayla Day. The young actress swiftly went through the gamut of awards season life, from a lauded Sundance premiere and a summer release date for the A24 project, topped off by a series of nominations and awards robust enough to earn Fisher her first Golden Globe nomination and the film an entire Wikipedia page of accolades.

In short, she knows her way around this awards stuff and the odd ways in which it works (and, arguably, doesn’t work), and perhaps that’s why the young star is savvy enough to push back against yesterday’s Oscar nominations.

The Scream Queens alum told Us in a statement, after her mother’s coroner’s results were released, that Fisher “battled drug addiction and mental illness” her whole life.“She ultimately died of it. She was purposefully open in all of her work about the social stigmas surrounding these diseases. … I know my Mom, she’d want her death to encourage people to be open about their struggles,” the Booksmart actress’ statement read.

" Eighth Grade " star Elsie Fisher faced a barrage of negative feedback after congratulating "Bohemian Rhapsody" on its 2019 Golden Globe Best Picture win, and she handled it like a pro.

In a Monday night thread on her Twitter account, Fisher opted to unspool her own new listing of film awards for one simple reason: “sometimes other ones suck.” The kid has impeccable taste (when IndieWire spoke to her on the occasion of her 2018 Golden Globe nomination, she was eager to chat up all the other films she’d loved that year) and based on the response to some of her nominations, other film lovers are digging her alternative accolades. It’s the Elsies!

In addition to traditional categories like Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Hair and Makeup, Best Costume Design, and four categories of acting nods, Fisher also offered categories for Best Independent Feature (“Booksmart,””Honey Boy,” “The Art of Self-Defense,” and “The Lighthouse”), Best Horror Feature (“Ready or Not,” “Us,” “Climax,” and “Midsommar”), and Best Young Performer (Roman Griffin Davis, Julia Butters, Shahadi Wright Joseph, and Noah Jupe), amongst others.

And while Fisher’s picks might seem like just a fun exercise in individual accolades, it’s hard to argue with her choices for the big guns: Best Picture and Best Director, which both provided more variety and diversity than the majority of the season’s biggest awards. For Best Picture, Fisher championed “The Farewell,” “Parasite,” “Honey Boy,” and “Jojo Rabbit”; and her Best Director picks were even better, including Lorene Scafaria, Bong Joon Ho, Alma Har’el, Lulu Wang, and Jordan Peele.

Check out the start of Fisher’s thread below, including a slew of thrilling nominees for the first annual (not actually official, but why shouldn’t they be?) Elsie Awards. Winners will be announced tonight at 9PM PT, on Twitter, of course.
